I did a lot of searching before purchasing the Sportcraft Arcade Hoops product. I wanted an arcade style basketball game for our downstairs game room that not only our kids, but also my husband and I could enjoy. I was a bit concerned about this product before receiving it since the price is so low compared to others like it. But, I took the gamble to save a little $$$ to spend on other game room goodies and it paid off big time. We used the site to store option from Walmart to save a little on shipping. This is the first time we have used that service and we were pleased with how smooth the process went. Transporting the arcade hoops home was no big issue either. It was light enough for my husband to lift without the help of an associate and it fit comfortably in the back of our PT Cruiser with one of the back seats folded down. The construction of the arcade hoops is really sturdy. It took a little while for the two of us to put it together (approx. 2 hours), but that is a good thing. If it were too easy to put together it would not be nearly as solid. The instructions were clear with the exception of one step where they instructed to use a smaller bolt than what it needed, but we quickly figured it out and had enough hardware to correct it. The only part of the unit that looks like it might wear out are the plastic sensors. But, I am sure that is a part that can be purchased separately through the company. The only real issue we had when playing was that the front velcro comes off during play. The problem is the fabric/mesh net is pulled a little tight so it puts a lot of stress on the velcro in that one area. To fix it, we just folded the front ball return fabric/net over one of the front bars instead of two of them as instructed. So far that works just fine. It folds up easily. when it is folded, it only takes up about half the space it would if it were folded out. Game play is awesome. There are several different modes of game play to keep you busy for hours. The game comes with 4 really nice Sportcraft basketballs and a pump to easily inflate them. Well worth the money!
